Moines) students benefit from a 95% placement rate. We invite you to Northwest Missouri State

This award will represent the value of the difference in price between in-state and out-of-state
tuition. It is equivalent to approximately $5,700 during your first year based on 28 credit hours (the
scholarship total will vary based on credit hours taken). The scholarship is renewable the second
year if a student completes 24 unique credit hours (superseded credit hours do not count twice) with
a 3.0 GPA. If a student does not maintain continuous enrollment they will lose their waiver. All
students entering on NIAS funds will receive an extensive session on how to maintain funding for
their entire degree.
